Alexandra Kiroi-Bogatyreva


                                    
      

After a decorated Junior career, this year has seen Alexandra move up into Senior International Rhythmic Gymnastics. Her dedication to the sport, teamed with her significant natural ability, has translated into continually improving results at both National and International level and a place on her first ever Commonwealth Games team, for the 2018 Gold Coast Games. 

In 2017, Alex enjoyed her most successful National Championships as a Junior International where she finished second in the All-Around Competition. In the same event she also took out the Gold Medal for her Club’s routine and Bronze for both Hoop and Ball. 

Kiroi-Bogatyreva has been consistently competing on the international circuit for over five years, with notable results including; third All-Around at the inaugural Australia Cup , second All-Around at the 2016 Stelle di Natale event in Italy, first All-Around at the 2017 Luxemburg Cup and 11th All Around at the 2017 FIG Aphrodite Cup in Greece.
